Summertime and the livin’ is easy. That’s how the old saying goes, right?
That may be so, but it’s far from the truth in agriculture. Early mornings. Late nights. And long, hot hours in between. Summer is a busy season for farmers and ranchers.
From sun up to sun down, they work through the heat. Harvesting crops, making hay while the sun shines, fixing fence and a whole lot more. And their kids—of all ages—are there for it all.
